Syria to allow inspectors to site of suspected chemical weapons attack

By Frederik Pleitgen, Hamdi Alkhshali and Josh Levs, CNN

Syria will allow U.N. inspectors full access to any site of a purported chemical weapons attack, a top Syrian official told CNN on Sunday.

The agreement is effective immediately, Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal al Mekdad said.

And inspectors hope to begin their probe Monday at the suspected chemical attack site, the U.N. secretary-general's office said.

    They will blame the rebels and say the rebels did it. They openly admit that their was an attack. What other options do they have? They know this administration will not take military action. They will take advantage of that.

    You two need to just go play in traffic. Completely in denial and completely distant from reality. People are dying and you two are fighting about the tea party... What the hell does the tea party have to do with this article? You two need to go play in traffic or do us all a favor and never use the internet forum again. You two could be staring straight at a terrorist and still wanna "Talk it out" with him on a round table like you HONESTLY feel that would work... With my personal experiences in Iraq, Afghan and Pakistan... I can tell you for certain that you two need to wise up and stop listening to liberal CNN and wise up... this Admin wants you to flock with the sheep he creates for his own personal agenda while he allows four American's to die in Libya versus helping them come home, OR maybe NSA, MAYBE IRS, MAYBE AP.... I can go on.... but hey, you two idiots still won't understand, maybe it's because my IQ is about 100 points higher...

      How dare you denigrate the name of our WW2 Gen. George Patton and why are you trying to ruin his good name by spewing out your Tea Party nonsense under it? This man commanded the 3rd Army during WW2 and now you want to tarnish his good name! Evidently, you Tea Partiers know no shame!

        You're right, Pete. This guy above is only denigrating George Patton's name for his own personal amusement! He knows better that to state that post above by saying that we should establish "pro-Western, U.S. backed pseudo-democracies" over there. The true George patton here at least tells it like it is and I wish that this Phunnie boy above would quit trolling him!!

      NO,No,no! The US should stay far away from Syria! They are doing a fine job of killing each other already, why give both sides American solderers to slaughter? When we left Iraq, the Iraqis resumed their intended desires. No more Americans to blow up, so go back to killing each other! Want they wanted to do anyway. STAY FAR AWAY FROM SYRIA!!! GAS AND ALL!

    This development can't be very good news for either the right-wing thugs in Washington or their warmongering Tea Party supporters who are aching for another war in the Middle East!!! This will strip these thugs an excuse to attack Syria and set up another pro-Western, U.S. backed pseud-democracy in the Middle East.
